I’m Going To Give You A Bear Hug – Giveaway and Book Review

20 Apr

I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug  is a wonderful book written by best-selling author, Caroline B. Cooney

This book is based off of a verse Caroline wrote for her now grown children many years ago.  It’s a beautiful book to read for a bedtime story, and so beautifully illustrated.

A Mommy transforms into different animals to give hugs.

Here are a couple of lines out of the book:

“I’m going to give you a dog hug.
A knock over chairs,
Chase up the stairs,
And sleep like a log hug.”  

“I’m going to give you a duck hug.
A webbed feet,
Feathered seat,
Waddle through the muck hug.”

Aren’t they cute?  You can have a really playful interaction with your child, grandchild, niece, or nephew or just a friend’s child.

So many kinds of hugs,  From the Inside Cover:  “Whether it’s a big bear, gasp for air, knock over a chair hug or a wet and drippy, slimy fish hug—children will giggle their way through all the imaginative examples of how to hug. Cooney’s engaging rhymes encourage playful interaction between parent and child and ultimately help them wind down before they snuggle into bed and drift off to sleep. ”

Pop open this giggly, charming book and enjoy!

I’m giving away a copy of this book.  All you have to do is comment below by Monday, April 23.  U.S. participants only.

I received this book from the Blythe Daniel Agency for an honest review.


Book Review – A Woman’s Guide To Reading The Bible In A Year

21 Feb

I just finished reading the book, A Woman’s Guide To Reading The Bible In A Year by Diane Stortz from Bethany House.  I highly recommend this book.  Have you tried to read the Bible and found you ran out of time, or it was too hard to understand or you just got tired because it was so much to read and sometimes a little boring?  I’ve been there.

It is simple and you complete only 3 chapters a day, less than twenty minutes,  and a short devotion each week .  This book made reading through the Bible so much easier for me so far this year.

In this book you truly get to know God – the promises of God are shared.  I loved how God’s holiness is shown in this book.  I loved how it made the Word come alive to me like never before.

Love this book and highly recommend it if you are reading through your Bible this year, and if you aren’t, pick up this book and see how it will make the Bible so much simpler to read in the future.

This book can be started at any time.  You do not have to wait for January so why not start it now.  The book assignments are numbered by week (52 weeks) and the three chapters  per day can be read in less than twenty minutes a day.  Each devotion blessed my heart.
